According to state tourism office figures, overall travel-related spending in Arizona from January through March 2008, the peak months of winter-visitor season, was $6 billion. The stock-market plunge and its related triggers unfolded later that year, launching the country into the recession that followed. Spending dipped to $5.3 billion for the same period in 2009 and has gradually climbed in subsequent years, to $6.3 billion for January through March 2013, the most recent figures available, according to the Office of Tourism.

I'm always happy to see the snowbirds arrive, Sure, the post office has long lines and sometimes it's hard to find a seat in the Elks dining room, but the non profit agency that I work for has a lot of volunteers for the food bank holidays and all the service businesses are making more money. Here in Havasu, the hot rods and restored cars are another bonus.
